I love its guts! Sort of…
I was able to read the entire novella within 2 hours. It was a simple read and definitely too short. The author probably could have expanded the plot more if she wanted to. The writing flowed quite smoothly through back and forth narrations between Sophie and Carter.
Any bad things you can imagine happened to Sophie’s and Carter’s life including drugs, abuse and prostitution. Both of them just have to be the adult at young age and took care of their family.
It is also my fault for giving this book a low rating especially when I finished reading Simone Elkeles both Leaving Paradise and Chain Reaction series as well as Lisa McMann Dream Catcher’s series very recently. Sophie & Carter just wasn’t up to par compared to them. That being said, I would still pay attention to future works from Chelsea Fine.
